The dust collector kept falling off and was not worth the trouble putting it back on. The plate given to punch holes in the sandpaper for dust collecting really did not help very much. The way the sand paper is help in place is better than the model that I had that was before very much like this one. The sander is good to fair on light to almost medium sanding. I would have had to sand a lot longer to sand if I had not put a good amount of pressure on the sander. I think the better way to go is to spend a little more and get a more powerful sander. Often I hand sand rather than bother to hook this up and put in paper for small jobs. I wish Craftsman would make their warranty and extended warranty longer, as some Home improvement stores have lifetime replacement on their power tools. This would once again place Craftsman on top.
Bought it for one project because it was a good price. Did the job as expected. Bag didn't seem to work that great, but my last one didn't have one at all so it was no bother.
This Craftsman 1/3 sheet pad sander is much more useful than the cheaper round stick on sanders, very handy to not have to rely on the round sheets to actually stick to the sander, this one you just clip on each end and it works good.

Since I am a die-hard Craftsman user, I had to have this little guy to go with my Craftsman 4"x36" Belt/Disc Sander and my 3"x21" Belt Sander. It's perfect for finish sanding. I've built & finished 2 full sized dining tables and 4 end tables.... Still going "Crafstman Strong"!
I have different sanders to avoid keep replacing the sandpiper I purchased this sander and I keep the same grade sandpiper on It all the time. I do lots and lots of wood working at home this sander is very good to have

This is a good sander for the price. But, DO NOT JAM THE PAD AGAINST ANYTHING WHILE FIRMLY HOLDING THE SANDER OR THE INSIDE POT-METAL FAN ASSEMBLY CAN CRACK INTO PIECES AND WRECK THE FAN AND JAM-STOP THE MOTOR. I have re-ordered another fan that mounts on the bottom end of the armature. Just DON'T JAM THE PAD AGAINST ITSELF OR THE FAN WILL CRACK INSIDE THE HOUSING.
